Lilypons

I rode over to Lilypons this morning only to find that the peak season for Water Lily and Lotus blossoms is in May & June. There were not a lot of blossoms showing but enough to get some nice shots. Here is one that I ran through one of my favorite filters. You can see […]

Auto Carrier Redux

Auto Carrier Redux

Earlier this month, I created a Showboard for my friend Harry Kraemer over at www.flymall.org. He had recently purchased this beautiful 1912 AutoCarrier to add to his growing collection of unique three wheel vehicles and needed the showboard for upcoming shows that he would be entering. We (I say ‘we’ because my showboards are a collaboration […]
